Critics used to go in hard on idols who had plans to become actors and for good reason too. Why would someone who is a singer delve into another division of the entertainment industry that is not their original craft or what they are good at? But despite the negative comments, there have been a handful of idols who have found huge success in the world of acting. Let’s take a look at three male idols we went from idol stardom to actor extraordinaire.
Yoochun of JYJ made an announcement back in 2010 that he would making his acting debut in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” Everybody was hesitant about his decision to jump into acting, but the idol megastar killed it as Lee Sunjoon in the fusion historical drama. What impressed critics and audiences most, were his decisions in choosing follow-up projects. Instead of going down familiar and cliche routes, he instead insisted on tackling projects that were outside of the norm. He co-starred in “Miss Ripley,” “Rooftop Prince,” and “Missing You.” The singer won the BS Drama Acting Awards in 2010, Paeksang Arts Awards, MBC Drama Awards, and the SBS Drama Awards just last year. Wait to prove them wrong!
[parts unrelated to Yoochun omitted]
Among many words that can describe Kim Jaejoong, there is “Networking Master”. His friendship network transcends national boundaries. Especially Japan, the country that he calls “my 2nd hometown”, is the place where Kim Jaejoong has gained many special connections.
He shares a warm friendship with many Japanese celebrities like Yamashita Tomohisa, Koike Teppei, Shirota Yuu, etc. Jaejoong introduced his friends, “Japanese entertainers are not showy just because they’re stars. Many of them are simple and honest.”
Especially, in case of Yamashita Tomohisa, they understand each other and their personalities also have many points in common. That’s why they’re exceptionally close. When Jaejoong went to Japan for a short vacation in April, they met and had a good time together riding the helicopter and playing at the amusement park.
First he changed his Twitter display picture to this…

Jaejoong and his Fanboys:
It seems that you particularly have many fanboys when analyzing the genders of fans in each JYJ member’s fandom.
Other members also have many male fans. I guess the older I become, the more fanboys I get. It is so cute when teen boys love me, calling me ‘Hyung’. Whenever choosing fans to go on a stage by drawing lots in fanmeetings, if it’s male fan I encourage and hug them more [than I do to female fans] on purpose. And then I also instill this idea ‘Loving Hyung is a highly advisable thing’ in them. (laugh)

The mushy story-line in ‘Missing You’:
It really made my hands and feet curl. After reading the script, I thought, how should I act it out, but when it was aired, the response was very good. I guess if I also had such a person that I loved so much, I would naturally have the same actions. Ah…. but now I still don’t have a girlfriend.

Acting in comedies or romances?:
If comedy is the fun of creating new scenes with colleagues, then love drama is work that I need to do when I get out of bed. Because in my daily life, besides golf and documentary channels, there is nothing else, haha!
